What’s Your Holiday Survival Plan?

November 23, 2013

If you don’t have one, you’re not alone.  And did you know that the average person gains 5 pounds during the holiday season? On a special holiday, many Americans eat an average of 8,000 calories and 400 grams of fat. That’s close to 2-3 times the recommended intake for an adult!

Well, we’ve crossed the starting mark for the holiday season … ready, set, go! Unfortunately, many are well on their way to adding a few extra pounds. Maybe it’s from the lack of due to busy holiday schedules or the extra-high calorie counts. Maybe both? The reality is we are bombarded with calories over the entire season. The hard truth is that the finish line isn’t until after the New Year!

Good news: we’re here to support your nutritional goals throughout this holiday season with accountability and action.

Six Steps for Surviving the Holidays

1.  Start Right. Eat breakfast every day with protein, fruit and whole grains.  This killer combo sets the tone for managing your blood sugars, energy level and hunger throughout the day.

2. Hydrate! Drink more than 64 ounces of water per day to help your body efficiently flush toxins and absorb nutrients.

3. Get Your Greens + Fiber. Eat more than 5 FULL cups of vegetables and fruits per day. Emphasize veggies – and for winter, roasting is an easy option. Our clients love our Maple Roasted Butternut Squash recipe.

4. Move Your Body. Make time for at least 30 minutes per day
of your favorite movement – dance, walk, run, practice yoga, swim, head to spin class, etc.

5. Snack Smart. Eat a fresh, balanced snack before heading out to holiday get-togethers. Always pair protein and fiber – and try to eat what’s in season. For example, a pear with a handful of almonds, apple slices with natural peanut or almond butter, or Greek yogurt with pomegranates and honey.

6. Party Healthier Not Heartier. Create new traditions by bringing a healthier appetizer or dish to your holiday parties. On my blog, try the Sweet Potato & Fig Gobbets, Cranberry & Sweet Potato Soup, Pumpkin Dip, or Autumn Date Boats.
